partisanship gone awry. i am encouraging those who live in my district and anyone else to visit my page on facebook and share how the proposed cuts will impact you, your loved ones, and your community. for the sake of our families, mr. speaker, our small businesses, our children, our teachers, our defense contractors, our public servants, our first responders, and others. i urge my republican colleagues to embrace the spirit of compromise that has been so absent of late in this chamber. i call on them to work with democrats to find a balanced, sensible, smart, rational, and responsible solution to our deficits. mr. speaker, we have three days left to go. let's bring something to the floor that's a solution. let's do it now. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from maryland yields back. the gentleman from pennsylvania, mr. murphy, is recognized for five minutes.
